A Connecticut middle-school moment:
On a reporting trip in Connecticut last week for a forthcoming story, I spent a morning in a seventh-grade classroom.

Once they turned in their sheets, the teacher set aside time for them to read the local newspaper—the print edition! The teacher has them regularly write reports on newspaper articles.
